15. There's a way forward from this moment that helps Bernie, and a way forward that hurts him.

Even if you can't see or agree with the urgency of the protestors' message, if you're really a supporter of Bernie's, from a purely selfish electoral standpoint, wouldn't you prefer to choose the way forward that helps him?

I'll give you a (blatant) hint. The way forward that hurts his electoral chances is to dwell on and disparage the protestors.

Politics is about a lot more than hurt feelings, either his or yours. You take the punches the fight sends your way, and you roll with them, and learn from them. You don't sit in the corner nursing your eye and mumbling curses as the guy who punched you like some nutcase going on and on about his red swingline stapler.
